Research Interests

Development of digitally recorded speech audiometry materials in foreign languages.

I have developed speech audiometry materials in English, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin (Beijing dialect), Mandarin (Taiwan dialect), Cantonese, Tagalog, Mongolian, Tongan, Samoan, Arabic, Turkish and French.

Normative data collection is underway for Vietnamese which should be completed mid year 2014.

Speech audiometry materials in additional languages will be developed in the future.

If you have an interest in developing speech audiometry materials for a language not listed above please email me to discuss possibilities of developing these materials.
